Is this Holyfield’s last stand?

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Evander Holyfield vs Nikolai ValuevThe December 20th fight in Zurich against the 7’0 Russian WBA champ Nikolai Valuev, could very well be Evander Holyfield’s last.

Holyfield at age 46, is 0-3-1 in his last 4 bouts and has clearly lost his power and ring dominance with age.

Valuev, 49-1, weighs 310lbs., nearly 100 pounds more than Holyfield and is the biggest fighter to ever hold a major belt.

In recent years, Holyfield has struggled financially. He’s pays nearly 500K annually in child support(11 kids) , owes creditor close to $12million and is possibly facing foreclosure on his Georgia mansion. Most would say he’s fighting for the money, but his payday, at the most, will be $1million.

With a win, though unlikely, Holyfield will become the oldest fighter to win a championship fight. This would also be his fifth time winning a championship belt. Will he stun all the pundits and naysayers, or will he be another in a long line of great fighters that don’t know how to bow out gracefully.

  1. Evander was robbed sat night.That Russian fighter has to be the slowest boxer i have ever seen.Evander was doing what he wanted to the guy and he is pat his prime.The heavyweight division in boxing is a joke.

  2. Yeah, its been a joke for about ten years now. The guys who hold belts now would not have even been contenders in the 90′s, its sad.

Speak Your Mind
